Why did you have an intimate wedding?

We wanted to enjoy the intimate moment just by ourselves.

What are some the challenges that you faced planning an intimate wedding?

We had to arrange everything from Germany without being on site and knowing any of the vendors. Also, we had to convince family and friends to stay home.

Was it difficult to pare down the guest list?

No, we had no guests.

What were the highlights of the reception?

There was no official reception, but we had cupcakes after the wedding and then got our wedding tattoos instead of rings.

What was the best thing about having an intimate wedding?

Everything went as expected. No need to be considerate for anyone else and no strict schedule without any space for us to enjoy our moments and our day.
